Fareed’s lawyer to file strike out application – FBC News

The defense attorney for the former CEO of Fijian Holdings Ltd Group will file a strike.

Nouzab Fareed’s attorney says this will be their next course of action if the witness is absent at the next set hearing.

The trial of Fareeds was set to begin today. However, the prosecutor told the court that a witness is still stuck in South Korea due to travel restrictions for COVID-19.

Fareed is charged with three charges of indecent assault.

It is believed that Fareed committed the crimes against two employees of the FHL group.

The defense attorney told the court that the trial date had been set in August and that the state had made no arrangements to bring the witness to Fiji.

He adds that flights have been advertised since August and yet no precautions have been taken.

He says the state was very slow and relaxed in the case.

In the meantime, an application has been filed and served by the state.

The state told the court that they were unable to go to court and that they had sought time to make travel arrangements for the witness who lives in South Korea.

The magistrate then extended Fareed’s bail and canceled his monthly police reporting day.

The new trial date was set for March 15 next year.
